The advanced NissanConnect system brings racing data to gamers

Another addition to the continued technological advanced by Nissan is NissanConnect NISMO Plus, which enables drivers to record data from their lap of a track and analyse their own driving. It takes data captured from the owner's real Nissan GT-R, recreating it as a virtual version in Gran Turismo 6 on the Playstation 4.

The system stores the car's GPS location, speed and RPM, effectively constructing a digital copy of the course. This helps drivers review their techniques and push for perfection, heightening their on-track performance.

A substantial 178 circuits around the world will have this system available, including many European Formula One tracks - increasing the fun and excitement for international drivers.

To make it even easier, a smartphone app for the system is launching in autumn 2014, expanding the popularity of the idea and the game and increasing its accessibility for Nissan fans everywhere. The only requirements are a registered and equipped Nissan GT-R, a smartphone with a data plan and an active NissanConnect subscription.
